-- have you done anything on rush limbaugh? he can say anything and his limbaughites -- everything he says. please, elaborate on him so that the listening audience can see where he is really coming from. thank you. i will hang up and listen. guest: great questions. we have indeed looked at several clips rachel maddow has made. i think we have done for ray and i think one was a false and maybe two others that were more in the true range. we have a range on the meter from true to false. true, mostly true, half true, barely true, false, and pants on fire. so she has a mixed record. rush limbaugh -- and you can check this by going to our site -- one of the things we did is allow you to look at someone's record so you can look at rush limbaugh on our site, click on the people and then click on his name and you can see his record, how many true, half true, etc. come. host: according, he has been true once, barely true twice, and false ones. guest: that is a mixed record. it also is a function -- we have only begun doing the talk show host and the pundits. so we are not looking at a large sample,

hannity, rush limbaugh. they don't have the stature they once had. they don't stant stand with anything. they haven't come out with their health care plan. sarah palin is looking to be the republican candidate for president next time around. for many republicans that's a nightmare because she is a loose cannon. so they have a republican party that really is looking for issues, looking for ways of reasserting themselves. a defeat on health care would be a great way of giving the obama administration a black eye. they are not going to be able to do that. again, 51 votes is all the democrats need to get health care or a significant part of health care through the senate this fall. >> secretary rice, i want to bring in jon hillsenrath, my co-host. i don't know if i should call you professor or secretary or professor secretary rice. >> your highness will be fine. >> the job market, isn't this a political impediment for president obama right now? it seems to me he's going to have a challenge in the months ahead making his argument as long as the unemployment rate is in the nine plus percent r

limbaugh. this guy in miami beach is blaming president obama for the state of his job? he should be blaming bush. bush was in office eight years. z no are a result much 12 years of republicans taking jobs to other countries. >> you talked about folks who have stopped looking for jobs. >> out sources has continued over the years. there's also jobs that are in sourced there is a little bit of a balance. in terms of the stats. you are counted as unemployed if you are actively looking. if you've stopped looking, then you become the discouraged worker and you drop off the rolls. i think it is best to look at the general trend on the unemployment rate. we are seeing some of the worst unemployment we've had since the depression. host: in the hartford current, they have a map of the u.s. this is not seasonally adjusted. the states in white have unemployment rate below 8%. in light orange social security 8-10%. the states in dark orange, the unemployment rate is above 15%. can you explain why it seems more people are out of work along the coasts? >> part has to do with the real estate bubble we had.

to knock down the other side. >> conservative radio talk-show host rush limbaugh says the white house is "looking for tattletales, snitches, and informants." the white house -- republicans point to a new "the wall street journal" and abc poll where people were asked about obama's health care plan. to 46% say it is a good idea. 42% say it is a bad idea. we just got a letter that the republican senator john cornyn sent to president obama. he says he has never been aware of any american president asking american citizens to report fellow citizens for anything deemed fishy. he wants to know what the white house is going to do and what action they intend to take against citizens reported to engaging in fishy speech. there is a lot of back-and- forth. martha: thank you. trace: check out this picture. it looks like a pretty normal journalist, right? she works in sueudan. something you see in this picture is causing riots in the streets. the astounding punishment and her dramatic story in three minutes. having my identity stolen has taken more than money from me. it's taken my time. time that

to the "playbook" when the white house appointed rush limbaugh as the republican chief spokesman. we're going to hear them trying to make republicans own what's going on or be blamed for what's going on in these town meetings. today the democratic national committee is out with an ad talking about angry mobs and very interesting for the first time the democratic party taking on, including a democratic web video which will surely be a cable ad. they're including that clip we've seen here on "morning joe" of those in the town meeting, an e-mail urging supporters to turn out today for vice president biden in new york, talking about angry mobs. so the idea is to either expose or caricature, depending on where you sit, what's going on in these groups that are fighting back. some of them encouraged by conservative groups, business groups. some of it probably genuine. >> mike, you mentioned the ad. let's watch a piece of that and show people what you're talking about. >> the right wing extremists. they lost the election. they lost on 0 the recovery act, the budget and children's health care. they've
